Blind to CD device

Recommended Posts

2nd posting of this message...still haven't gotten any help. I am a new RE user (have 4.3) and am on a Mac G4 Tower with OS 9.1. My CD-RW built-in is not being recognized by RE. I have done everything I can think of (downloaded the Drive updater, tried it with extensions off, etc) and am pretty exasperated. I am running a PowerMac G4 with 667 MHz processor; 256 MB RAM and 60 GB hard drive. CD-RW is the std built-in for this (SONY; CRX140E is the device model, which seems to be on your list of compatible drives.) with a 1.4.5 driver. I can write to CD from iTunes, but don't see a default to turn this off. Does this need to be disabled and how?


Help appreciated.
